«In Sugartown» is a compilation of songs lifted from the early GTC albums «Comin’ Down With The Blues», «Oochie Coochie!» and «It’s Alright». You will find a lot of good original material, combined with some obscure but classic rythm & blues songs.
GTC as an inspirational guide
Good Time Charlie has played an important role – both as an inspiration, a legendary influence on musicians as well as the blues societies and clubs in the Norwegian blues circuts. Through the 80`s and the 90`s they functioned as a veritable school of blues for other bands and aspiring musicians, serving as an important inspirational guide. They have therefore been instrumental in setting the high standard now being followed by the new generation of Norwegian blues bands.
Godfathers of authentic blues in Norway
The band has been named the godfathers of authentic blues in Norway – and with good reason. 30 years as one of the most important pioneer bands within the authentic blues and soul genre has given GTC a reputation and status as the best R&B band outside the US in a long time.
Great stylistic span
Their solid backbeat, groove and overall pure style have brought GTC praise as a back-up band for such blues greats as Lowell Fulson, Hubert Sumlin, James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins and Jimmy Dawkins. Good Time Charlie have impressed all the legends.Why? Because they feel as much at home playing the raw Sun sounds of Memphis as the heavy Chess blues of Chicago, the deep New Orleans funk of the 60`s as well as the swampy moods of the Louisiana bayou, the shufle of Texas R&B and the jump and jive of the West Coast.
